Shababa

Friday, Nov 19th 5:45p to 6:45pShababa is a fun, engaging “service” for our youngest generation. All children ~8 and under (and their siblings, parents, and grandparents) are welcome to experience the joy of Shabbat with dancing, singing, stories, prayers and a free dinner for the kids. Join Rabbi Rachel Zerin in this free program – part of our early childhood education. RSVPs are not required, but are encouraged to enable us to better plan for dinner. Sponsorship opportunities are available – for just $50 you can celebrate a child’s birthday by sponsoring a Shababa. To sponsor a dinner, please contact Rabbi Rachel Zerin (rzerin@bethelwh.org or 860-233-9696).

Annual Turkey Drive for JFS

Sunday, Nov 21st 9:00a to 12:00pThe need for turkey donations is great this year, as there are so many in our community who risk going without a holiday meal. Last year we collected more than 200 turkeys and nearly $3,000. This year we hope to help even more families! Please bring your frozen turkeys (kosher or non-kosher), pop your trunks and one of our volunteers will be there to assist you. If you cannot bring a turkey, a check made payable to Jewish Family Services (with "food pantry" in the memo line) is also very much appreciated. This event will take place rain or shine.

KNITzvah

Sunday, Nov 21st 10:00a to 11:00aOne Sunday morning each month, a group of dedicated Beth El women gather to knit and crochet afghans, hats, scarves, mittens and gloves for hospitals, shelters, orphanages, and special-needs facilities locally and in Israel. Hundreds of people of all ages have been warmed by the beautiful and colorful work of this very committed group. Along with the sound of their needles, you’ll hear a lot of laughter. Creating the items is a joy, but the comradery and friendships that have developed is just as meaningful. The group has been recognized for their work, receiving the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism Centennial Schechter Commendation Award for outstanding outreach to the general and Jewish community. Whether you have experience or are interested in learning, you will be welcomed. For more information, contact BJ Diamond and Fran Weinberger at knitzvahgrp@gmail.com.
